      - [Prudence]

Self-abnegation is a trait most often seen in women, rarely in men.

      - [Gratitude]

There are certain epochs in art when simplicity is audacious originality.
      - [Art]

There are certain occasions when, in art, simplicity is an audacious originality.
      - [Simplicity]

There are some people who think that all the world should share their misfortune, although they do not share in the sufferings of anybody else.

We are solemnly obliged to the children of those who have loved us.
      - [Obligation]
